We weren’t expecting to get a new doggie so fast…. but the universe sent us this little one. If there is anything I’ve learned in all my years… it’s when the stars align and things seem right, they usually are.
So we took the leap and welcomed this little corgi puppy into our lives. He has been nothing short (hee hee) of magical. He is making us all feel so much better. We all still miss Gerty so much, but the happiness is now back in our house.
(His name is Sprout. Inspired by the amazing series “Korgi” by Christian Slade.)
Last Sunday we lost our little Gerty.
Anyone who met her knew what a sweet dog she was. She was pure love. Alway happy, always ready for fun. On our walks so many people would smile at her as they walked by. More than once, people have yelled from passing cars what a cute dog she was. She didn’t have a bad bone in her body.
She was my constant companion, and I couldn’t have dreamed of a better one. She brought a smile to my face every single day. Just looking at her instantly made my heart happy. She slept with Ila every night, she was her best friend.
Our house is so painfully quiet, all I see is the hole she has left. We all loved her with all our hearts and miss her so badly.
Gerty, you were the best girl.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Me, Too! book launch today at the Confederation Library! It was great to share this sweet funny book with so many sweet funny kids. I was also really happy to share the colouring book I made with the children. I’ve added it to my “freebies” section and a free downloadable PDF.
What a treat it was to work on this illustration. It’s the “Take a Trip” spread in Chirp magazine. This month they go to Newfoundland and I got to draw it!
When I was a little girl we would go on summer trips to visit my grandparents in Newfoundland. I have such happy magical memories of those times. Their house was on a hill overlooking the ocean. Their shore was not as busy as this though!
The best part for me was sneaking in some personal touches. I added my sweet nanny putting up laundry and (a little girl) me and my dad sitting on a bench on the hill.
It’s in the May 2015 issue of Chirp.
I’ll be having a book launch for Me, Too! (Saturday May 2nd, 11:00 a.m.) at the Children’s Library at the Confederation Centre here in Charlottetown. I’ll be reading the book and handing out colouring books I’ve made especially for the event. There might even be some cupcakes. I’m really excited and hope to see you there!
Me, too! is out today! Here in Charlottetown you can find it at the Bookmark downtown. It is an exciting day indeed!
